Dundas & Broadview Fixer-Upper With Massive Upside
106 Hamilton Needs You
Ladies and Gents please meet 106 Hamilton St right here in the heart of Riverside, just west of Leslieville and of course, East of Corktown.
Queen and Broadview as you may very well know, is the downtown of the East Side. 106 Hamilton is tucked away just far enough that you don’t have to deal with any of the noise but get to stroll (or stumble) over to all the fun in mere minutes…on foot!
So the place is in rough shape. There’s no sugar coating that! in fact all that debris you see in the 3D tour and photos happened as our photographer was walking through the house! The ceiling broke a little, some papers fell from…well…somewhere.
Anyway, long story short; this home isn’t for the fait of heart. It’s not for the rookie developer and it’s not for the “I’ll-just-go-to-home-depot-and-pay-retail-for-everything” newbie. If you’re in it to flip it then you need to know your trades and have a strong budget. If you’re in this for the long game and want to rent it out then time is of the essence! You need to have your teams lined up and know what you’re doing to make this investment work for you (to make any investment work for you).
A Little About Leslieville, Riverside & Dundas & Carlaw
Listen, we don’t need to sell you on how amazing the Riverside and Leslieville communities are. Or do we? If you’re from around here you know how Riverside has changed to literally become the “Downtown” of the East Side. The opening of the Broadview Hotel, the happening Prohibition Gastropub and the many amazing restaurants keep Riverside hopping till the wee hours.
Leslieville on the other hand goes to bed at around 10pm. We’ve likely got some of the best brunch spots in Toronto and killer restaurants. There are a few places that keep the party going to compete for some night time action like East Side Social, WAYLA Bar and of course Bill Hicks Bar. But what Leslieville does best is provide amazing local grocery options, deliver some of the best restaurants in Toronto and we’re pretty sure Leslieville offers the most gyms per capita in Toronto as well with Dwell, Fortis, CrossfitTO, Move, Hone all within a few short blocks of each other.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t toss some Dundas and Carlaw love into the mix. This area has positioned itself in the Leslieville community as the “IT” spot. Much of the credit goes to the community efforts spearheaded by the folks at Dundas & Carlaw Bar/Cafe with the Leslieville Beer Fest (the most successful event Leslieville has ever seen) and the opening of the Crows Theatre and Restaurant on the opposite corner. That combined with the new shops have stolen some of the Thunder away from the popular Queen Street strip. Don’t worry, Queen St, Dundas has no beef with you.
